Building the fundamental
element of community.

The Relationship Foundation of Virginia, formerly First Things First of Greater Richmond, recognizes that the strength of our community and that the future of our city lies in the health of the family. 

When our families and relationships are healthy, life is richer and more fun. Without strong, lasting relationships, life can be harder, feel emptier and lead to more challenges – not only for us, but for our communities. 

As our name suggests, Relationship Foundation of Virginia is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to building the fundamental element of strong communities – healthy relationships and families.

For youth, we deliver programs that teach self-respect and respect for others. For individuals – single or in long-term relationships and marriages – we lead engaging programs to create awareness and provide the practical tools to pursue and sustain strong relationships.

For new and expecting dads, we equip them with the skills to be active, committed fathers for life. We provide all with the confidence and strength to thrive.

By understanding of the complexity and joys of relationships, we help everyone we serve be more successful, which makes our community a better place to live.
